in southern california firefighters are battling a wildfire on the lost coyotes indian reservation. that's in san diego county. the fire is about 30% contained. flames came near some cabins on friday but are now turning away from hop lated areas in steep, rugged terrain. fighting fires like that cost money. while the state budget is shrinking, the fire danger isn't. but there is growing backlash to a new fee the state is charging you for fire protection. here's abc7's capital correspondence, nanette miranda. she's near sacramento with the story. >> the the state of california
6:31am
provides fire protection through cal fire, covering more than of the acres of land mostly in rural areas, one-third of the state. to help pay for the service 850,000 residents will be billed $150 year under a new law governor brown signed this month, pushed through with just democratic support. so imagine the outrage in communities like rancho marietta, outside sacramento, where they also pay a fire fee. >> no, i don't want to pay double taxes. we are taxed enough for everything. >> i think it's another way to fee us to death so that they can cover all the expenses. >> you wouldn't believe the phone calls i got coming into my office. >> state senator ted gains just filed a referendum with the state that would ask them to overturn the fire fee which he says is really a tax. the republican say property taxes already cover basic
6:32am
services. >> clearly it's illegal in my mind and unfair. they are already paying taxes for these services and there's no excuse to go after rural homeowners again. >> but with this up and down economy, cal fire said it cannot do its job with constant budget cuts, especially when developers keep building in wildfire territory. the new fire fee would mean $200 million a year for the agency. >> it would be detrimental for us to lose that much of our fire protection funding. >> while higher taxes are unpopular, some understand why they are necessary. >> everyone wants fire protection. we have to pay for it. we want police protection, you've got to pay for it. so i don't have a problem with an extra $150. >> lawmakers will try to tweak the law to exclude residents who already pay the local fire fee. but senator gains said that's not good enough and will try to
6:33am
gather half a million signatures to qualify for the june ballot. in sacramento, abc7 news. a new plan to preserve the famous views of yosemite's water falls and granite domes calls for cutting down hundreds and possibly thousands of trees. they say they need to be trimmed anyway to protect in wildfires. since 1864 naturally occurring fire had been put out by man in the spirit of protect being the landscape. but that allowed fuels to build up to dangerous levels. next month, after three years of study and public hearings, the final version of a scenic vista management plan is due to be released. that is going to list 181 historic vistas that are now blocked by trees. starting in the fall of next year, the sound of falling timber and buzzing chainsaws will echo throughout the valley. >> start here right now, the sound of chirping birds and does the sun have a sound? i don't know. >> partly cloudy skies in the
6:34am
east bay but lots of low cloud stratus has made its way through here. and we will see warmer some spots, cooler elsewhere and a pretty divided forecast in terms of our look ahead, whether we are going to feel like summer or fall. i will have the forecast next. >> thank you, lisa. also coming up from massage to acupuncture. the alternative treatments now available for bay area women returning from war.

6:38am
>> it's significant in this case because these creatures are about the toughest little creatures we know in the sea. >> as creatures go, they are fairly benign, not a big part of the food change. as soon as they develop the male makes the scene and it doesn't get more fulfilling than that. five weeks from cradle to grave. >> this proved ideal for the experiment because they live in localized area and they adapt to temperature ranges in their pools of water. combine that with their short life spans and if any animal could evolve in time to keep pace with warming oceans, it would probably be them. >> back in the lab they are pushing and measuring their acts to survive warmer temperatures." it's not good. so far they can take an additional 1 degree fahrenheit. >> they are basically already at their limit. they are already living close to their upper temperature limit.
6:39am
>> these creatures tell us in fact a little more change is potentially catastrophic. >> for the big picture you might chair them in tied pools to canaries in coal mines. as they go today, other species may follow. >> what we are concerned about is the species that can't shift their ranges fast enough in response to climate change and many species and live in fragmented habitats may be at risk. >> it's nothing we haven't heard before, just one more creature add to go a weight of evidence. along san francisco bay, wayne freedman, abc7 news. >> and that's something you keep an eye on too, all the climate changes. what's happening with our weather today. >> we are look at widespread low clouds and fog. and as you start out you see in santa cruz we are looking at clouds. sunshine is on the way here along the coast. a little further north in the city, cloudy skies. delays of an hour at sfo. we will look for late clearing
6:40am
here. but in the north bay, look at this view. beautiful conditions. low clouds and fog up to 2,000 feet. so above, yeah, it looks nice and sunny but we will wait for the sunshine today. in fact, it will be a very slow burn off closer to the coast. but we will look for some warmer numbers. east bay and south bay today. main hily in the upper 50s right now. 58 oakland, san francisco and san jose. so low clouds and maybe mist and drizzle along the coast. we will look for the sun about 11:00 working its way westward and then cooler conditions as yet another trough swings on through throughout the early part of the week. so today the trough and area of low pressure still far to the north and west of us. you can see the spin in the atmosphere here. so by tomorrow, into tuesday, that provides anywhere from two to four degrees cooling in our inland valleys. so we will look for the numbers to come down for the first part of the week. but then after that it looks like we are going to see a
6:41am
significant warming trend. temperatures at or above normal. as for today, we are looking at a clear start early. around livermore and concord looking at sun by by about noontime more sin shine across the bay and the clouds burn back to the coast. no changes there. still with the 60s and breezy winds. we are looking at more 70s into the east bay, upper 70s and even some 80s as we head toward contra costa county today. some minor changes. in fact, the warmup throughout the central value. 92 sacramento. 100 fresno. 83 los angeles. as we go through the next couple days the marine layer gets a little thicker and it mixes out all together. today we will look for temperatures to climb into the low 80s in santa clara after the morning low clouds. in fact, a few breaks out there right now. 80 in sunyvale. peninsula some mist near the coast and drizzle. 78 later today in redwood city.
6:42am
in san francisco numbers will respond to some midday, mid-afternoon sunshine, 66 there. 70 in south city and in the north bay look for highs ranging from 63 at stinson, 83 in santa rosa. so a little warming the further east and south you go. 74 in oakland. upper 70s in union city and the inland valleys should see highs in the mid-80s around the delta. and as well as pleasanton. 88 brentwood and down by the monterey bay. it will brighten up there and warm up into the low 70s in watsonville. here's the 7 day forecast. today some minor warming. east bay, south bay, and then we will look for a little bit of cooling right through tuesday and by wednesday, thursday we start to warm up everywhere. even the coast warms up with temperatures right into next weekend, significantly warmer. >> i hope we don't get like the other parts of the country. >> no, i don't think so. it will be tempered. >> all right. thank you, lisa. >> a bay area medical center is making a unique program
